University of Wyoming Plans Layoffs, No Faculty Job Losses - Associated Press

The University of Wyoming will lay off employees in coming weeks as the state's only public, four-year college deals with more than $40 million in budget cuts, but there are no plans for faculty job eliminations, a university official said this week. Fewer than 50 college workers are expected to lose their jobs as university administrators cut costs because of lower state revenues tied to the state's dependence on the energy sector and its dwindling profits, university spokesman Chad Baldwin told the Casper Star-Tribune ( ) on Monday. Baldwin said he could not provide a more precise figure for the number of layoffs because those decisions will be made by university deans and department heads. The amount of money that the university will save will depend on their decisions, he said. Employees will find out in mid-May whether they will lose their jobs and those forced to go will depart by June 30, Baldwin said.
